to be under assad. what is that christian population saying? many news reports say they're unsure whether they want to support the the rebels or assad and if they can't make up their mind, how can we know for certain that an islamic government is what we really want? >> and so, senator, why did you choose this way? you were very specific in your criticism. it's not just mitt romney. lindsey graham, john mccain have said they're in favor of arming the rebels in syria. had you already tried to talk to mitt romney and he wasn't listening? >> well, we've had a couple of differences and i support governor romney and think he will make a great president, but on foreign policy, i think there's too much agreement between the republicans and democrats. but i think the people are tired of war. when you talk to republicans or democrats now, i think it's almost universal. people want to come home from afghanistan. you know, there's such great sorrow when you think about our soldiers being killed by the same police and soldiers being helped. so i've seen a great movement in recent weeks towards really
